Default Superman is obsolent or go back to the man of the future ...

do not get me wrong ... i think the only way to "re-introduce" Superman is going back to his real origin - being the man of the future - means limited powers (eg. jumps over buildings, faster than a train, etc.) ... all the abominations done with his powers the last 20 years (i mean, c'mon, he was even flying through the sun) harmed his character as a believable comic hero too much .....

Superman is still the man of tomorrow. Ok, it's not realistic that humans will evolve the ability to fly and push planets, but it doesn't have to be. It's fantasy. Fantasy is still allowed in this day and age, isn't it? Does everything have to be plausible now? Ok, Batman Begins was cool, it depicted Batman's world in a plausible way. That doesn't mean that the entire comic industry has to follow it's example and only tell plausible stories.

-No to setting it in the 40s
- No to making him only be able to jump really high
- If they want a full blown origin dont put him in his 40s.
- And Superman is still a believable comic book character

Just make him like how he always is but set in TODAY'S world. A 1940's Superman is simply out of place

The thing I'd LOVE to see is the original Superman in terms of his personality; Violent and sarcastic. Of course not Batman-violent or (insert a overly sarcastic superhero name here)-sarcastic. Still kind-hearted, desinterested, heroic etc etc, but with his original cocky personality.

Some of that and also bring back his populist social conscience. Superman should be the champion of the oppressed and they could use at least a fictional champion now.

Austrian, what is it with you lol?! You said the same kind of sh** in the Spidey forums. It should be set present day. In truth though, if I had to choose between Spidey or Superman being made into a period piece, I think Superman would work better. Anywho....

Brilliant ideas. I'm sure a Superman movie set in the 40s with a Superman who is only slightly more powerful than Spiderman will do really well

I believe the word you were looking for is "obsolete".

Yes i had thought of this too. It would be nice to see a more faithful take on the original

superman this time, with more grounded powers and his high social conscience, and not a

hero paying obedience blindingly in the US flag, or saving cats from trees like a good

boyscout.

No doubt the boyscout/establishment stooge crap has got to go. It's killing Superman.

@ladyvader: osbsoletem - of course. sorry for that, not my mother tongue

@eggyman: i simply think it would be a nice try to put them back into the time period the comic was released ... just an idea ... BUT: go to the cap threads, where all of sudden everybody gets crazy about the 40is .... a faithful superman in this period would do well, i am sure
